    I love the idea of the swim suit soap from LVER...I'm going to to go tomorrow and see if I can find some here!

    After making a trip to the Dollar Tree, yes it is there, I was disappointed. Other brides in Ontario, you need to share with me what you found there.

    I found Dollarama had a lot more of Oot bag finds.

     

    One find I did find though was a few water and summer toys for the one child that is coming. They had actually started packing up the summer stuff in boxes but they were still in the aisles so I carefully peaked in and found some water balls(soak up water) and a soft frisbee. I did get some ring pops for our ladies day. One thing that I saw but didn't need were Ocean Creature crackers (like gold fish) in mini packs in boxes that contained four bags for 1$. You would have to taste them but had I not already sealed my snack bags, I would have bought a few, especially if there were more kids coming.

     

    One find I saw at Michaels' but they didn't have the right initials I was looking for was damask compact mirrors with a colored initial in turquoise, green or purple. They also had damask pencils and notepads.

     

    Also at Michaels', not Oot bag related, I got a photo charm for a photo of my mom that will be attached to my bouquet(she passed away four years ago)

    I also found silver shells with turquoise stones, they are charms so have a hole at the top to pass a wire through. I bought some floral wire sticks and I am going to still these in my real touch bouquet that should be arriving next week! They were 6.00$ each but I had a 20% off my entire purchase(got three). They had a silver starfish, not as nice and a goldish starfish with some smaller colored stones on it.

     

    At Bath and Body Works, I bought striped fuzzy shea butter socks with grips on them for myself and the bridesmaids. Our hotel rooms are tile like most and are supposedly cold at night...and I don't want any of us slipping on those floors! They had some wrapped up like cupcakes, really cute but they weren't my colors so I bought the red and turquoise ones and I am going to wrap them in a similar way.

     

    At La Vie en Rose, they have small Soak up I think it is called for 99 cents which should give you likely more then two washes of your swimsuits. I got two for each bridesmaid. I thought this was a great find as the bottles are 10$.

     

    So I think I am officially done my Oot bag shopping.

     

    Going to try and finish my labels tonight and I will take photos and share. I am going to start giving my bags out to a few people at my shower next weekend! Can't believe there is less then 30 days until we leave!

      Ask them if they have any...they only had two on the counter, I think as a display so I asked if they had more and they took out an entire box!!

          Hey,

           

          Just watch out if you order from here because I ordered from here and they don't tell you the shipping right away, they send you an email a couple days later and tell you the shipping and if you still want to order....my shipping was crazy like $20...but I was so tired of looking for bags that ended up paying it, it was almost as much as the bags cost. So just be aware. They are a Canadian site from Ontario, so why such expensive shipping?

            Thanks for the advice,

            well they have a location in Pickering and i like 10Min's away, so I'm hoping i can go pick them up. 

            I would have to call them and ask if that's even possible.

              They actually have all the bags and stuff in store so you can go and see it before you buy.  Which is also dangerous because there is lots of things that are perfect for a destination wedding....

                I know that's right, AquaCat. I walked into the Mississauga location and I still can't explained what happened or how I manage to spend what I spent. I sure did have some 'splaining to do to the Mister! lol.

                    Anyone have ideas for something to include for a 14-year-old boy?  He'll be the only teen on our trip and just want to make sure his bag is a little bit different. Thanks!
